Additional memory - speed?

When I purchased my laptop it already some aditional RAM I think it's got 256. However, compared to my desk top it's very slow so I'm wanting to add more RAM as I believe that will enhance its performance? And my question is, if I buy some additional memory ie another 256 (making a total of 512 will it  cause a problem as when I've read the bumph it says that this particular model only supports 384? And if I buy another 128 to make it 384 will I notice any difference?

Yes even the 128 increase will be noticeable, but to be sure of what your system can take visit the crucial site and download the scanner tool to tell you what the memory capacity is

Is there a way the memory in a toshiba satellite 1005-s157 be increased to more than 512MB?

Yes you can, at least to 1 Gb maybe possibly to 2 Gb.
There will be two memory slots in your laptop. To increase the RAM to 1 Gb install another 512 Mb RAM module in the empty 2nd memory slot. Make sure you use the same make and speed RAM as the one that is installed.
If you have two 256 Mb RAM modules installed in your laptop then you need to replace the two 256 Mb RAM modules with two 512 Mb RAM modules to get a total of 1 Gb RAM.

I added a 256 mb ram on top of my original 256 mb ram to make it 512 mb on my ASUS A6500R. how come when i check my system properties it show 384 mb? what's the maximum expandable ram for my laptop?

Check you system information on the net, it should say "it support up to ??gb. Make sure that the memory that you bought isn't it a high density memory, if it is it will only recognize half of the RAM.

Adding memory

Try re-seating the RAM. If that doesn't work ensure that your laptop supports the ram you bought. If the RAM you have is PC2700 and your computer only supports up to PC2500 (for example) it wont work.
